Based on a sample of almost 89,000 youth in 26 states, A Fragile Foundation, Second Edition, features data from communities that used the Search Institute Profiles of Student Life: Attitudes and Behaviors survey during 2010. It shows the realities, challenges, and possibilities for young people as they see it. With easy-to-read text and charts, the report is a necessary tool for practitioners and policymakers who need information about the attitudes and behaviors of young people for reflection, planning, advocating, and action.
